Sen. Brian Schatz gets a big endorsement from SHOPO, but his opponent, Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, got the backing of Sen. Daniel Inouye's widow.


Gearing up for his primary election challenge,  Brian Schatz has added a big name to his list of supporters.  Former Vice President Al Gore has endorsed the Hawaii Senator for re-election, praising him for his efforts to promote a greener environment.

In a statement, Gore credited Schatz with shepherding Hawaii's Clean Energy initiative.  The Senator faces Representative Colleen Hanabusa in the Senate primary next year.

Schatz says he is grateful for Gore's endorsement and looks forward to working with him to expand clean energy production.
